Today is the first day of spring. A time of celebration and of new beginnings.
And so to celebrate, there is a signed copy of ‘We That are Left’ to be won, along with a very unique box of raw chocolates, – the very first to be available from ‘Plant Based Alchemy’, who have created vegan, gluten free and sugar free versions of the recipes in ‘We That are Left’, not to mention the recipe for the amazing gluten and sugar free vegan chocolate cake for the launch.
Sorry, but I can only post out to UK entrants!
The amazing vegan, gluten and sugar-free chocolate cake at the launch of ‘We That are Left’. Click on the photograph for the recipe.
The chocolates are the first commercial batch made by Plant Based Alchemy, made on the Spring Equinox to celebrate the first day of spring, at nearby Lammas, a pioneering eco-village in West Wales, which is powered by renewables.
Lammas, where the chocolates were made
This is a taste of the way they were made, and there will be plenty more information on the Plant Based Alchemy blog soon. The cacao butter looks delicious in itself, then there’s the addition of agave syrup, and finally the mixing …
(I’ve tried the prototypes – unforgettably different and delicious)
Mixing the Chocolates
Finally, the finished box – irresistible.
To have a chance to win the signed book and this very special box of chocolates, all you have to do is to add a comment to this post. The closing date is midnight on March 25th, in case you would like to give your prize as a perfect Mother’s Day present. Phoebe, the Author’s Secretary will then ceremoniously draw a name from a hat.

A Winner is Announced!
Thank you to everyone who entered the competition to win a signed copy of Eden’s Garden.
There were so many entries we had to have a draw to find the final winner. Not from a bonnet – mine had gone missing somehow – but from my lovely old jewellery box. It is an heirloom, although not exactly mine, having been found and pounced upon in a local charity shop, along with the gorgeous necklace.
AND SO THE WINNER IS ….
SUSAN JONES OF WARWICKSHIRE!
Congratulations Susan! A signed copy of Eden’s Garden will be shortly winging its way towards you.
And to demonstrate the actual signing, here is me signing at Waterstones last week. You can read more about it on my website, here
